Escea works very closely with architects, interior designers and other building industry professionals. It is not surprising then that Escea is present at the Designex shows – the biggest building industry exhibitions in Australasia. This year Escea participated in the Australian Designex (Melbourne, 30th May – 1st June) and will be present at the upcoming Designex Show in Auckland 23-25 June 2013.
We are pleased to announce that the new super-efficient Escea DL1100 fireplace will be available from June 2013 (NZ) and from July 2013 (AUS).
Escea range changes are under way for this year with a transition from older IB Series models to the very efficient DX and DL Series models.
Please find a list of the upcoming changes which will affect the New Zealand and to the lesser degree Australian market.
The vertical ST500 (NZ) indoor gas fireplace has been dropped from the range. In mid 2013 we will release the DL1100 fireplace which will replace the IB1100. This year we will also phase down the IB600 (NZ) fireplace.
Escea has been recognised as a supplier to Trends Top 30 Homes during 2012 to 2013. This is another feather in the cap and another award to add to our growing collection.
Our Architectural Detailer Grant Simpson provides a valuable link between Escea and the architecture industry. Grant’s knowledge of construction techniques combined with his understanding of Escea products is of great benefit for both architects and their clients.
You may recall in July we announced our entry into the World Architectural News (WAN) Awards, an emerging international design competition. WAN has a huge global audience and the Awards are the world’s largest architectural awards – this year 846 entries from 51 countries competed and were judged by 118 international judges. The Awards celebrate and promote the best in architectural details, materials and products and we were delighted to be shortlisted in the 2012 WAN Product of the Year category.
Escea has a new distributor for the USA and Canada who provides great sales and technical support for our luxury fireplaces there.
With ever increasing interest and enquiries from architects, designers and landscapers from around the world, Escea has created the new position of Architectural Detailer/Liaison within the company and created a new webpage to assist these professionals in selecting the best possible solution for their project.
The Escea DX Series fireplaces are not only popular with architects and clients but also have caught the eye of the best designers and stylists – both in New Zealand and also globally.
Escea is pleased to announce the arrival of the DX1000 fireplace to join the DX Series. DX fireplaces offer a see-through double sided option, heat ducting that allows the fireplace to be used in a central heating capacity and even allow control via an iPhone or Android app.
